What vitamin b complex helps to cure small types of oral aphthosis?

What vitamin b complex helps to cure small types of oral aphthosis?

Apthous ulcers: I agree with dr. Ali -- b complex (which contains all "b" vitamins) may help. Also l-lysine, an amino acid, taken at 1000mg 3/day with meals may help. Some have also used lemon balm tea. Lemon balm (melissa officinalis) extract is additionally known to help cold sores (hsv-2). http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/19023806. ...Read more

My 8 month old baby developed head tic/jerk to left shoulder when excited or sleepy. Her pedia prescribed extra b complex. Will she outgrow this?

Depends: Keep meticulous follow up with your pediatrician for your infant's development and growth. Keep a watch/diary of these events. Does she have a neck muscle that is tighter than the other side-muscular torticollis? If these events are more frequent and longer lasting-ask your pediatrician if a pediatric neurologist is worthwhile to consult with. ...Read more

See dermatologist: I suspect you have some type of chronic hereditary skin condition, something like histiocytoiss x, just to name one. I would urge you to see a dermatologist, perhaps even a pediatric one despite your age, and discuss skin biopsy with them to see if condition can be identified once and for all. Only then can appropriate treatment be initiated. ...Read more

Only minutes: In most cases b complex will be absorbed quite quickly.

For what condition?: Jamieson's b complex 100 mg is a timed-release product. B vitamins are also water-soluble, so that any excess your body does not need will be excreted. Taking vitamin b6 (pyridoxine) at 1-6 grams (not milligrams as in this preparation) per day over many months can cause a sensory neuropathy. For most people, the 50mg b complex would be enough -- if you have poor diet & stress, maybe need more. ...Read more
